STORY at Home: How to participate in online reflections.

How reflections work during online events:

When a story ends, you’ll click the green check in the Participant view if you have something to share… and if you’re one of the three people chosen, when you've been "un-muted", you’ll offer a few supportive words about the story. Bringing this type of curiosity to our events expands our capacity for connection. If you're new to reflections or looking to expand the ways you naturally reflect, here are a few tips.


As you listen to a story, what themes or elements stand out to you? Some things you might notice while you're experiencing a story:

  • Language - is there anything that strikes you about the way the words they use words work together? Are there descriptions that delighted you?

  • Style - does this person have a unique way of sharing?

  • Tone - how would you celebrate the quality of their voice?

  • Physicality - are they using their body in an interesting way? Facial expressions or gestures?

  • Relationships - anything noteworthy about the people, events, words, sounds, or how one story relates to another?

  • Perspectives - how does this person's point(s) of view align or differ from your own? Does the way they look at something open up new ways for you to see things?


Often reflections will start with some variation on When you shared your story

  • I felt…

  • I loved...

  • I appreciated the way you...

  • I was surprised when…

  • It resonated with me because...

  • I realized…

  • You helped me understand…

  • You expanded the way I see...

  • You touched me when you said...

  • You are so good at…


Let the reflections begin!
